Seriously, I am too old to pull an all nighter. I had planned on getting off work at 7 am, then going to PC Fit at 10 and my Doc appt at 11:30 - It didn't work out that way.
I ended up canceling the appointment and going to the 5:30 PC Fit class. I slept until about 3 pm, but when you don't go to bed until almost 10, it isn't very long... I am really tired tonight.
I have the week off of work, and I don't really have any plans. I really want to go biking at Raystown, but I don't have anyone to go with me, and it isn't a place you want to go alone. Well, maybe if you were experienced, or male... but I am neither of those. My friend Paul said he would go to the lake at least with me. It sucks because we will be right where the bike trails are!
I have also decided to keep a record of when I eat and what I am feeling at the time. So far today I have eaten once out of true hunger and twice because I needed to. Not sure how this is going to work...
I hope my Spark friends have a wonderful night~

I am not exercising anymore... I don't like to "exercise" - It makes me feel like I should be wearing leg warmers, a sweat band and a neon pink leotard. I am now going to refer to it as training. When I refer to it as training, it makes me feel more tough. It makes me feel bad ass. So... no more exercise, training only.
Besides, you don't exercise to prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse, you train!

I hate trying to come up with Blog titles. I just don't have one for today.
I am working a 13 hour overnight shift. It is my day off and I am working extra because I want the overtime. I am getting a new tattoo next month, and I need the extra cash to pay for it. It isn't going to be little either. It is a coverup of one I already have and it will most likely turn out to be a half sleeve. I figure it isn't going to be cheap, so I need all the extra cash I can get.
My co-worker decided he didn't want tomorrow's extra shift, so, I picked it up too. The wonderful thing is I will get off work on Monday morning at 7:00 am. I have PC Fit at 10:00 and a Dr's appt at 11:30. Lucky for me, my doctor takes forever, so I will be able to catch a nap while I wait. Most likely a few hour one. I am ok with that. I thought about canceling my appointment, and taking PC Fit at 5:30 that evening, but I am not sure what the cancellation policy is. I think it is 24 hours, but I am sure they would make an exception if I told them I was called into work. Then again, I would have to stay up anyway and wait for the office to open, so I might as well just go.
Anyway, not much else to report - hope all of my Spark Friends are having an excellent weekend!

Yesterday the library director bought me a Frape from McDonalds - it was yummy! You know, I should have looked at the calories before I consumed it... Holy crow it was almost 600 calories!! 600! That is more than half of my food allotment! Holy wow! Lesson learned! and then some! The good news is it didn't make me sick. Yay?
I went to PC Fit again this morning - I had an AWESOME time! I love it! There are a few different options I can do as far as paying for it and they are...
1. $100/month w/ a 1 year commitment
2. $135/month w/ no commitment
3. $100 "punch card" good for 6 classes
I think I am going to do option 3 for right now because... I have an appointment scheduled on August 13th to get some work done to my tattoo. Basically, I am getting a half sleeve done. I won't be able to do the class for at least 2 weeks. After my tattoo is healed I am going to go with option #1. I just don't see paying the $100 for august when I am not going to get a full month in. The card will work better until I am healed.
I went to support group tonight. We were supposed to discuss how to set up a good walking program, but we got a new Coordinator, so we just had an open forum. I think I like this new girl. She is really nice, knowledgeable and straight forward. I don't think she agrees with how I do some things, but we all have to do what works for us. Plus, i don't think she is used to dealing with someone who so balls to the walls about fitness.
I went to the library today, I tanned... cooked. All in all life is good.

My alarm went off at 7:30 this morning. I heard it raining outside and did NOT want to get out of bed. PC Fit class didn't start until 10:00, but I wanted to be up early, eat breakfast and make sure my food was settled before going to class.
I went to the gym, stashed my bags in a locker and went for it. There were a lot of people in the class today, so that was super exciting! About three minuets into the class, I realized I had nothing to be nervous about! I was fitting in just fine! I wasn't the fittest person there, but there were lots of girls who were about the same level as myself!
I did have to modify a few things (but just slightly - burpees...) and instead of running a few of the laps, I used them to recover, but I did the class, and I think I did pretty dang good!
After that I headed to the library to volunteer. A lady was supposed to show up and do a craft project with the teens, but "forgot to write it down" and never showed. Luckily, the director had picked up a few "make your own lip gloss pots" kits and had a bunch of temporary henna tattoos so I was able to run the teen program today. The girls and I had a lot of fun tattooing each other and making pink lip gloss.
Oh, in case anyone is interested, here is the link to the info page about PC Fit www.procarefitness.com/p-c-fit/
After the library, I went to fake and bake, then came home and did some batch cooking for the boyfriend's dinners for the next 4 days. I made him BBQ Chicken w/ some kind of nasty pasta stuff from a bag and Spaghetti w/ meat sauce (made with sweet italian sausage)
He will eat that for the next four days - alternating what he has on which day. I have given up trying to feed him better. He just won't eat it. I feel bad feeding him "nasty pasta from a bag" but he won't eat anything else. It is worse than feeding a kid sometimes!
All in all, it has been a good day and I feel pretty accomplished!
